 Digital Projector Colour Light Output (CLO)

Digital Projector Colour Light Output (CLO)

Epson had a bright idea -- measure the the colour light output (CLO) instead of just the white. High CLO means colours are up to 3 times brighter than 1-chip DLP projectors, meaning you don’t need to worry about your presentation displaying dark, dull images -- with an Epson projector you’ll get maximum impact.

Colour is an important part of image quality, which is why a projector’s colour brightness, given in lumens, is important to know. If it’s not as high as the white brightness, images are duller and colours may appear washed out. Measure the brightness of the red, green and blue light and the resulting value is your Colour Brightness or Colour Light Output (CLO).

Digital projectors produce colour in different ways, resulting in big differences in colour brightness. Many manufacturers only quote the brightness in lumens of their projectors’ white light. This just shows how bright a projector is when showing a plain white image; it doesn’t give the full picture.

Why choose a 3LCD projector?

As the number one projector manufacturer in Europe1, Epson leads the market in the development of projector technology. Epson projectors use a 3LCD projection engine to deliver bright, clear images that are rich in detail and colour.

Bright pictures in daylight or with the lights on, as well as in the dark

Many other projectors use 1-chip DLP2 projector systems, which create thousands of pulses of coloured light per second. They do this by shining lamp light through red, green, blue and white3 parts of a rotating colour wheel. These light pulses are then reflected by a DMD4 device, which is on a hinge and has a tiny mirror for each pixel of the image.

The series of rapid colour bursts is then projected onto the screen. The viewer's brain can't pick out the individual flickers - it mixes the basic colours that appear in succession in each pixel to come up with the final colour the viewer sees.

Epson’s 3LCD system works differently, using a combination of dichroic mirrors to separate the white light from the projector lamp into red, green and blue light. Each of the three light colours is then passed through its own LCD panel and recombined using a prism before being projected onto the screen.

With 1-chip DLP technology, colour break-up or the ‘rainbow effect’ can sometimes be seen. This occurs when the eye perceives the individual colours, and is a result of the colours being projected sequentially by the colour wheel. Epson’s 3LCD technology avoids this by including all three basic colours in each pixel of the projection, delivering superior Colour Light Output that’s easier on the eyes.

This projector replaced a Panasonic one I had had for quite a few years, on switching the projector on, put on the rf glasses and watched avatar I cannot imagine how the picture quality can be bettered in a home machine, the film was just stunning, even my wife ( who was very unhappy that I was replacing what she thought was a perfectly good machine) was stunned, she could not believe the quality and brightness of the epson projector. I was worried and confused about the 3d glasses but they are easy to get and cheap, you do not have to pay a fortune for them, just make sure they are rf standard and they will work. To sum up ,this is the best buy I have made in a long time, it's not expensive but gives stunning 2d and 3d pictures straight out of the box, for value for money it's a six star machine.

Picture Quality was very good in 2D but I had problems with 3D with crosstalk and slight headache. I will give this another go using different glasses and see what happens as I liked this projector and would recommend it.

The project is well built with filter included, but the black color is terribly grey.
